We kicked off the first week of summer by spending a few days at my favorite place in the whole world – Lake Tahoe. Due to our unusually cool spring and summer, it was waaay too cold to spend any time on the beach, so one day we took a hike at D.L. Bliss state park. The lake’s shades of sapphire, turqoise and deep blue took my breath away and I couldn’t help but take a few photos to share with all of you.
For much of the hike you’re skirting the cliff, about 100 feet above the lake with nothing but a sheer drop-off should you lose your footing. And yes, there’s the occasional landslide, as evidenced by the massive stone blocking our pathway.
One giant stone had a little stone ‘necklace’ around its middle, another has a stone balanced on top of it, and one is even shaped like a heart.
If you read my blog at all, you know how I love to take action shots of birds, so you can imagine how it killed me when I just missed an eagle flying out of this nest!!
Definitely not an eagle, but lovely just the same!
